In order to raise money for breast cancer research, The University of Toledo Medical Center took part in the Pink Glove Dance competition this year — and needs votes by Friday, Nov. 2 at midnight in order to win.

The competition is sponsored by Medline Industry, which provides medical supplies and products. Medline donates money to the charities of those who win — $10,000 to first place, $5,000 to second place and $2,000 to third place.

UTMC has chosen Susan G. Komen of Northwest Ohio as its charity this year, and so far they’ve racked up more than 700 votes by dancing to “Evacuate the Dance Floor” by Cascada. UTMC is one of more than 260 organizations from all over the country that are participating this year.

Almost all UTMC employees — from doctors and nurses to custodians — took part in the making of the video, which also features breast cancer survivors and fighters, some of whom are being treated at the hospital.
